Not just cycling photos! . . . . .

I don't just take cycling photos! In fact, apart from my trips to the Tour and the occasional Classic, I spend a lot more time taking landscape photos, mostly in my own 'back yard' of North Yorkshire.
I have just been selected as one of the contributing photographers for UKLandscape, a new web site specialising in UK landscape photography. This site will represent the work of several photographers and allow visitors to look for images for use on web sites, in print, or to buy photographic prints.
